  • Visiting the largest natural history museum of Switzerland is an interesting experience. The museum has a wide collection of very well presented sections, which include- animals, fossils and even dinosaurs. The museum also has a block dedicated to minerals. Apart from different types of crystals, the museum also hosts a moon stone which it received as a gift from NASA. Entry to the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle is free for public. Exception is the section dedicated to ants. One have to purchase a ticket to visit that part of the museum.

  • Great place. ESPECIALLY being that it is free. Glass in front of exhibits is extremely well kept to the point where sometimes you swore there was nothing in front of you. I was alone but all of the kids there seemed to have a great time. all of the smaller animals were in different poses which is made it much more interesting. A+

  • So many different animals and creatures on display, a lot presented with an idea of their natural habitat surrounding them. Not much space for large baggage, buggies can be left in the entrance. Some English speaking staff on reception.

  • Great half day out for families. Free entrance, open 10h to 17h. Kids love it, especially the animals, interesting for adults. Temporary exhibitions change regularly (small fee) and good café

  • They let us use their bathroom they have bathroom. Wash closet. It was pretty. Didn't actually go in.
